Aurora right now!
« on: March 17, 2015, 09:53:00 PM »
Isn't typical? The KP levels tonight are off the scale but no chance of seeing anything here in Edinburgh under wall to wall cloud!Boo hoo!

Maybe you can see something?

Yeah and it looks like the weather is going to be crap for the Eclipse as well... seriously frustrating.


I have read that we might have another chance tonight so I might head out as the cloud isn't as think tonight here and some sites say it might clear up. Then again I need to work out where I want to go!
